Business ethics research of interest to your whole company

In this article from the most recent issue of Ethisphere magazine Jon Haidt of NYU and I take readers on a tour of the Ethical Systems web site. “EthSys” offers  cutting edge social science research that should be of  interest not only to C&E professionals but also  to board members and executives; to those working in finance, law, HR, audit and procurement; and to many others in the workplace as well.

The ideas and information on EthSys can be helpful in developing C&E training, drafting ethics sections of employee newsletters and in other types of  company communications.  This knowledge can enrich the ethics-related dialogue in workplaces by turning what sometimes seems like a dry and static subject into a compelling and dynamic one.  It can help leaders lead ethically – and show that the same sort of social science findings and insights that increasingly are seen as key to running a profitable business are also essential to running an ethical one. It can also be useful in designing risk assessments; creating various types of policies and procedures; and crafting recognition strategies to promote ethical behavior.

And, that’s only part of what EthSys can do for your company.

So, take the tour yourself.
